NO MATTER WHERE you are in the world, if any of these songs come on you must stop what you’re doing and sing along.
Swaying, eye-closing and weeping is optional.
Don’t forgot to look embarrassed during the “we make love to the sound of the ocean” bit.

The volume at which you yell “HEY BABY LET THE FREE BIRDS FLY” depends on how far away from home you are.
Put em Under Pressure
Sing it loud and sing it proud.
WE’RE ALL PART OF JACKIE’S ARMY…

All together now:
AND IT’S NO, NAY, NEVER…
Love it or hate it, you HAVE to sing along. If you have a friend from Galway be sure to point at her regularly.
If you’re from Galway be sure to look sufficiently smug.
Again, don’t forget to look smug if you’re from Galway.
Hold Me Now
Johnny Logan, J-LO, Ireland’s hero.
Close your eyes and channel the white suit.
A Tijuana Gypsy Stole My Personal Stereo
A stone cold classic.
